Golf Important Information

  1. This event is open to University of Iowa students, faculty, staff, affiliates and the general public.
  2. All players must check-in with their government-issued photo ID or University ID cards at the tournament check-in table prior to their rounds.
  3. Men will tee-off from the Gold tees, and women will tee-off from the Silver tees. Seniors (over 65) may tee-off from the White tees.
  4. Players will use two-person scramble rules. Both players will hit from the tee. The team selects the most advantageous of the two drives and both players will hit from that spot. This process will continue until the ball is holed.
  5. Players must be present and ready to start by the tournament’s scheduled start time of 10:00 AM.
  6. Players may use caddies. However, caddies must pay for and ride in carts, so as to not slow down play.
  7. Completed scorecards must be submitted to the Finkbine Golf Shop following the round.
  8. Teams must have two people registered and must be paid by the registration deadline. If a conflict arises and a team must switch out a player for another, that must be done by 2:00 PM on Friday, April 20 by emailing the Intramural Sports staff.
  9. Each competing organization is allowed two team entries per points division (Men's, Women's, Co-Rec, Fraternity or Sorority) to accumulate points in the Intramural Sports Points Championship presented by Coach's Corner, but there is no maximum on the amount of teams that can register for an organization. The top two finishing teams for each organization will be counted towards the point total. Teams must designate their organization affiliations before the event begins. To receive Co-Rec points, each team must have a male and a female competing for the team.
